In this paper, the authors describe a simulation based performance analysis of DSR on the basis of comparison between 802.11 and CSMA protocols. Dynamic Source Routing protocol (DSR) provides simple and efficient routing for multi-hop ad-hoc network of mobile nodes. It utilizes a specially designed framework which builds on the Global Mobile Information System Simulator (GloMoSim). Some optimizations of DSR have already been implemented in GloMoSim. Several different simulation results show that performance got better by 802.11 MAC layer protocol.
